  • Grader (G) is an undergraduate or graduate student that assists faculty with grading student work (homework, reports, projects, quizzes, tests) using an Instructor-provided rubric or answer sheet. The Grader is not responsible for assigning a student grade.
  • Instructional Assistant (IA) is a graduate student who does not have direct instructional duties but assists faculty with academic courses, programs, projects, or other activities in support of the instructional process.
  • Teaching Assistant (TA) is a graduate student who has direct student contact in a formal instructional setting but does not have primary responsibility for teaching a course for credit; they perform under the instructor’s direct supervision and provide general assistance to the instructional process. Teaching assistants may not be listed as instructor of record though they may lecture.
  • Teaching Fellow (TF) has the primary responsibility for teaching a course for credit under the direct supervision of a faculty member and is listed as the instructor of record. Appointments at this level normally imply advanced academic status and substantial prior college or university experience. For SACS compliance, TFs should possess at least a master’s degree in the teaching discipline or 18 graduate semester hours in the teaching discipline. Graduate students employed as TFs are not allowed to be instructors of record for courses that carry graduate credit.
